(2003 Vintage) Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006! The Nuthouse designation is used for our biggest, boldest and most aggressive style of Pinot Noir. This Nuthouse blend is predominantly based on Pinot Noir fruit from low elevation blocks at our estate Lone Star Vineyard in the Eola Hills. TASTING NOTES How deep is the ocean? How long does the ‘E’ note of a string double bass vibrate through one’s soul? These are just some of the thoughts one will contemplate while experiencing this 2002 Nuthouse Pinot Noir! Aromas...
International Wine Cellar(2006 Vintage) Vivid red. Spicy raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by a suave floral quality. Open-knit red fruit flavors are framed by gentle tannins and pick up an intriguing spiciness on the back end. The floral note echoes through the long, sappy finish. Drink this before the Spirithouse.
